During this event we will perform free scans for AGEs in your body.
What are AGEs?
What are AGEs?Research studies, scientists and medical doctors have pinpointed a key contributor in the aging process: The accumulation of biomarkers called Advanced Glycation End-products, or AGEs.
How are AGEs formed?
AGEs form when a sugar molecule and a protein peptide bond together. Our bodies need both sugars and proteins, but when we have more sugar in our blood than the body needs for energy, higher than normal levels of AGEs develop. Eventually, these high levels lead to a buildup of AGEs in our tissues.
Why are AGEs important?
Above average levels of AGEs age us from the inside out. Our skin wrinkles. Our joints ache. High levels of AGEs cause our internal organs to age as well. Researchers are finding that the underlying cause of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, liver disease, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer and many more serious diseases are directly linked to the to the accumulation of AGEs in the body.
What non-invasitve technology is used?
The AGE Reader has a light source which illuminates the skin of the forearm. This light will excite fluorescent moieties in the tissue which will emit light of a different wavelength: fluorescence. The emitted light is detected using a spectrometer. The fluorescent AGEs are linked to specific collagen, proteins and lipids.
